Underground Collective presents THE FUTURE ….

DRUMZ DRUMZ DRUMZ AND MORE DRUMZ

Colombia, South America is usually only known for it’s negative media attention but it’s truly a diamond in the ruff. Colombia has a rich and vibrant culture which is also matched by the beautiful landscaping that surrounds it, creating the perfect setting for it’s lush musical flavor. It is filled with talented musicians just waiting to shine out into the world and onto the dance floors.
The musical roots found in Colombia are the perfect accompaniment for deep soulful house music, an incorporation of diverse influences stemming from Native Indigenous to African to Spanish and the Caribbean.

From this hidden gem emerges KALERO, a talented up and coming production artist born and raised in Bogota, Colombia. KALERO has infused his childhood roots of Afro – Colombian with some heavy percussion and a skillful arrangement of Afro vocals and deep old school 90’s house chords, the result is dance floor fire.

The EP is entitled The Makondo EP consisting of 6 tracks, the first cuts to be released off of his forthcoming album on Underground Collective Recordings.
The Makondo EP really brings something fresh and new to the house scene and the songs have been tested and given a stamp of approval on the dance floor.

Keep your eyes and ears open for more KALERO in the near future, you will undoubtedly be blown away when you hear for yourself the raw talent and devotion this Colombian native puts into his music.

Colombia is now officially on the map!!!!
